Angelique Kerber won her first Grand Slam title at the Australian Open, thus becoming the first German to win a Grand Slam title since Steffi Graf at the 1999 French Open defeating World No. 1 Serena Williams in the final. Kerber would go on to win the 2016 US Open, defeating Karolína Plíšková in the final, thus would attain her World No. 1 ranking. Garbiñe Muguruza won her first Grand Slam title at the French Open, thus becoming the first Spaniard to win a Grand Slam title since Arantxa Sánchez Vicario at the 1998 French Open by defeating Williams in the final. Williams herself would go on to reach the season's third Grand Slam finals and defeat Kerber in the final at Wimbledon to claim her 22nd Grand Slam title, equaling Steffi Graf's record for most Grand Slam titles in the Open Era.

Statistical informationEdit

These tables present the number of singles (S), doubles (D), and mixed doubles (X) titles won by each player and each nation during the season, within all the tournament categories of the 2016 WTA Tour: the Grand Slam tournaments, the tennis event at the Rio de Janeiro Summer Olympic Games, the year-end championships (the WTA Tour Championships and the Tournament of Champions), the WTA Premier tournaments (Premier Mandatory, Premier 5, and regular Premier), and the WTA International tournaments.[1] The players/nations are sorted by: 1) total number of titles (a doubles title won by two players representing the same nation counts as only one win for the nation); 2) cumulated importance of those titles (one Grand Slam win equalling two Premier Mandatory/Premier 5 wins, one year-end championships win equalling one-and-a-half Premier Mandatory/Premier 5 win, one Premier Mandatory/Premier 5 win equalling two Premier wins, one Olympic win equalling one-and-a-half Premier win, one Premier win equalling two International wins); 3) a singles > doubles > mixed doubles hierarchy; 4) alphabetical order (by family names for players).
